Victoria, BC – The Victoria Shamrocks are 2014 Western Lacrosse Association Champions after a 9-4 victory over the Maple Ridge Burrards in Game 5 of the league final on Wednesday night at 100.3 The Q Centre.
In front of a packed home crowd, Victoria controlled the tempo right from the start and barely let go as they claimed their 19th WLA crown and second in as many years. The Shamrocks notched the series-clinching win with an outstanding opening period and capped it off with some solid execution in the third. Corey Small and Dhane Smith finished the game with four points each, while transition player Hass was named the playoff’s Most Valuable Player.
